Karin Melberg Schwier

Karin is a full-time freelance writer, editor and illustrator. She writes for local and national magazines and newspapers, and a variety of non-profits, businesses and government agencies. Her photographs often accompany her work, and her illustrations appear in books, presentations and private collections. While she has a longtime focus on disability issues, she is a sought-after and versatile writer and handles each job with respect, professionalism and a sense of humour. She approaches every assignment knowing there’s a worthwhile story to be told, and she understands the importance of the good communications loop in every project. Her writing has appeared as invited book chapters and in anthologies in Canada and the U.S. She has written eight books with a focus on the lives of people with intellectual disabilities and edited several others. She received the Women of Distinction Award (Arts, Culture and Heritage) in 2013 for her writing. She is the current editor of Saskatoon HOME magazine, as well as a contributing writer, and also writes for Prairies North magazine. Her debut novel, Small Reckonings, won the 2019 John V. Hicks Award for Fiction (with the working title Violet). Most recently, the novel was shortlisted (Saskatoon Book Award category) in the Saskatchewan Books Awards 2021.
